The great commission was not exclusively given to white anglo-saxon christians… it was given to the local church! All churches from every nation, tongue, and tribe must be active in fulfilling the great commission. Regardless of the socioeconomic context of a new church plant, it must soon began to actively engage the world by praying, giving, and going. Otherwise, it can hardly be called a biblical church.
Our 5 year old church in Santiago, Chile is having their annual missions conference this week. During the last 12 months, our small church has given $5,600.00 dollars to support world evangelization! This year we hope to do much more.
Pray that God will help us to give more generously, pray more fervently, and witness more boldly for Him during this next year.
